It's amazing that something can make you hide yourself from the world, i'm sure no one really cares so i wont go into the details but my life has been rocky for the last year or so.  I was always loud, brash, opinionated, and more than a little arrogant, I suppose the past years events have been the cosmos' way of taking me down a peg or two.  I've watched alot of you for a long time in admiration at how you all have the ability to find art, and magic in everyday life.  I think it's quite time that i find my voice again and tell this world FUCK YOU!  I intend to start finally sharing what i find beautiful in this world with any of you who would be interested.  I ask that as i do this everyone give me room to grow and offer their opinions on what i could do differently ( ie a little help so i dont suck =) )When all of the beauty has been stripped from your world it's hard to fill it up again but i'm going to try.  Thanks for listening errr.. reading my rant

when i was younger, one of my teachers said "you're such a talented writer, but why can't you write pretty things?"

i told her - "if i was meant to write pretty things, i would have been born into a brady bunch world"

thus, i believe, art is our way of telling our story, all of it, the good and bad. it's always served as a way to alleviate my boredom, and when i quit getting high altogether, it served as my escape. i may not be the best artist out there....but i keep doing it, for me.

I know that feeling and i also know i can get used to being in it and i know that at that point i am compromising.Because what is okay? Me being lost? Me being away from myself? Me not recognizing myself? There can be no compromises ,because our potential to be happy i every day 100% and hey you know that and i know that , oh well yes it takes a little effort ha ha but at the end of the day guess what ..... ha ha ha i like you journal Sam i anticipate more of your work.

My life is not as beautiful roses either.It`s as dead weeds standing upon a dry dusty desolate place...But my work keeps me going.The only happiness I get is through my art work...Some way some how WE WILL MAKE IT...

i made that journal post quite some time ago but i find that it's still holding true in my life, I watch others in envy at times. I was labeled a few less than pleasant things in my life and i eventually stopped worrying about what others think but now i think of myself in those same ways. Oh well such are our lives i guess. Thanks for letting me know that other people feel the same way. and by the way i love your gallery you're very talented and i look foward to seeing what the future holds.

i think once you can "own" your bad labels, you can then set yourself free from them - no one can hang them over you anymore once you own them, forgive yourself if necessary and allow yourself to grow - move on :heart:

Thankx for the watch. Switch to "Heyday" and you'll find that things make much more sense. Starfish is so dark.

Pax,

Hi, I saw you added me to your devwatch, thanks :) So I came on over to check out your page and read your journal & I can't even begin to tell you how much I can relate to this. In my eyes, art is the best release so get on it!! :)

I can relate to all of this.

As a photographer, I tend to look at my goal as sharing what I happen to perceive as beautiful with the world. I think this is a very healthy way for you to implement some healing in your life.

Look forward to seeing your work.
